MRI shows Bills WR Stevie Johnson has a hamstring strain
Even with The Amish Rifle under center, Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson has been remarkably consistent over the past three seasons.
Since 2010, Johnson has had 76 to 82 receptions and 1,004 to 1,073 receiving yards each season and has a total of 23 touchdowns during that span.
Considering the Bills have parted ways with Ryan Fitzpatrick, it will come down to either Kevin Kolb or rookie E.J. Manuel to get him the ball, which may jeopardize the extension of his streak of 1,000-yard seasons to four.
Now there is something else that puts his streak in danger: his hamstring.
Johnson left today's practice with a hamstring injury and the results of the MRI show a hamstring strain, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Of course, a strain is better than a tear, but there is no timetable established yet for his return.
Even if he is ready for the start of the regular season, hamstring injuries tend to linger so I would definitely worry about the potential of a recurrence of injury.
I will update my fantasy football rankings over the weekend, but Johnson is currently my 32nd-ranked fantasy wide receiver.
